Hundreds of African Australians rally against ‘racist’ reporting

Up to 500 protesters gathered in emotional scenes outside the Channel Seven studio in Docklands on Saturday to condemn what they say is biased reporting about crime in Melbourne’s African community.

The protest gained traction on social media in response to a recent report on the network’s Sunday Night program about Melbourne’s so-called ‘African gangs’ .

While every community experienced crime, not every community was vilified, he said.

“We have people in our community that do the wrong thing — but every community has this problem.

“We came to Channel Seven to show our complex community … Their image is not what our community is,” he said.
